Later Skater is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 5 and Mario Party: The Top 100. Its name is a pun on the phrase "Later, gator."

Gameplay[edit]

Players attempt to complete five laps by skating around the ice rink. Players have to be careful not to hit the side or the center of the ice rink, or they will slow down. The first player who does five laps wins, and a new record may be set by any human player, as long as the time taken is faster than the previous record.

This minigame appears as the second-to-last minigame in Mini-Game Decathlon. Here, the player's objective is to finish five laps as fast as possible to earn as many points as possible, up to 1,000. The default record for this minigame in Mini-Game Decathlon is 40 seconds. The minigame ends once all players finish or if one minute 30 seconds pass.
